BSN Summer Fast Track

BSN Summer Fast Track

BSN Summer Fast Track (online)

 Application window: March 1 to April 15, 2022 


The BSN Summer Fast Track Program is an online program specifically for students who are enrolled in a regionally accredited Associate’s Degree in Nursing (ADN) Program in California. BSN Summer Fast Track courses are offered in the summer term only. ADN students are eligible for this program if they have enrolled in at least one semester of their ADN program prior to their BSN Summer Fast Track summer term. BSN Summer Fast Track students are not formally accepted to CSUDH, but attend classes through Extended Education Special Sessions. This does not guarantee admission to the RN-BSN Program as students must still submit an application to the regular RN-BSN program and meet RN-BSN program and University requirements.


  • Beginning March 1, 2022 the application to the BSN Summer Fast Track program will open. Students must also provide an unofficial transcript showing current enrollment in at least one semester of their ADN program in the Spring semester before starting the BSN Summer Fast Track program.
  • Once accepted into the BSN SFT, students will be contacted to sign-up for an online orientation if this is their first Summer in the BSN SFT program.
  • 120 seats are available for each Summer 1 and Summer 2 term and are limited to availability. Admission will be on a "first come, first-served" basis and only complete, accurate applications will be considered.


  • Tuition will be paid to Extended Education at time of registration at a reduced rate ($270 per unit). No financial aid is available, however, Extended Education does offer a payment plan.
  • Books for each course can be found online via the University Bookstore.


  • The BSN SFT courses are June 6, 2022 to August 19, 2022
  • All classes are online using the Blackboard Learning Management System. There is a prescribed curriculum and at this time students are only allowed to take 6 units per summer. Once formally admitted into the RN-BSN Program, students can finish their degrees in as little as two semesters.*
